What Is ZO 3 Step Peel?
The ZO 3-Step Peel is a medical-strength peel that combines 10% TCA (trichloroacetic acid), salicylic acid, lactic acid and high-dose retinol (6%). It is indicated for patients of any skin type and colour, who require a more potent skin peel (medium strength), but with minimal downtime (3-5 days). This peel may be repeated 2-3 times annually or as required.

how does it work?
Step 1 of the system’s three steps is the peel itself, which is formulated to remove the outermost layer of skin. Composed of salicylic acid (17%), trichloracetic acid (10%) and lactic acid (5%), the peel also contains saponins to minimize inflammation and glycerin for hydration.
Step 2 is application of the Stimulating 6% Retinol Creme. Applied after the peel solution, the cream works to stimulate cellular function at a deep skin level. The results include collagen enhancement as well as firming and wrinkle reduction.
Step 3 refers to the application of the Calming Crème Post Procedure Skin Relief. This cream works to minimize inflammation and irritation that may result from the first two steps, as well as restore the moisture balance of the skin. You can take the cream home to apply twice daily following the in-office treatment to speed the healing process.
